Lady Gaga stops concert to help bleeding fan in the audience
Lady Gaga recently halted her show at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT, to tend to a bleeding fan in the audience.
The 31-year-old singer – who has been touring the globe with her Joanne World Tour – noticed the injured fan in the crowd on Saturday, and stopped her performance to see if was OK.
“Hi, I just looked over and I saw, are you doing alright?” Gaga – whose real name is Stefani Germanotta – asked the fan.
She added: “Are you doing alright? Are you gonna stay? Do you need some extra help? Do you need a paramedic? They’re on their way? OK.”
After finding out the fan’s name, Gaga apologized.
“Meredith, I’m so sorry you got hit in the face and that you’re bleeding. You OK? We’re gonna make sure you’re okay, alright?”
The “Poker Face” hitmaker also reassured the crowed the fan was OK.
“What we all need to remember is that there’s more important things than show business,” she continued. “[Meredith] was going to go off to see the doctor.”
Gaga then dedicated her hit song “Paparazzi” to Meredith, while also offering her a backstage pass.
Gaga’s latest appearance comes after she joined forces, once again, with former vice-president Joe Biden as part of a new campaign for It’s On Us – the movement to end sexual assault.
“It’s on us. It’s on everyone to intervene and stop abuse when they see and hear about it. No man has the right to raise his hand to a woman for any reason, other than self-defense,” Biden said in a video posted to social media, while Gaga added male victims of abuse aren’t to be forgotten either.
The singer has spoken candidly about the sexual abuse she suffered as a teenager, revealing she was raped at age 19 by a much older man.
